All you need to know about cats

  1. 1. All you need to know aboutCATS<br />In this powerpoint slide, you will know more about cats and you will need to answer a quiz.<br />
  2. 2. DID YOU KNOW??<br />Domestic cats have another name and that is “Moggie”. Moggies are found all over the world!!<br />
  3. 3. DECISION<br />The decision to add a cat to your family should not be taken lightly. There are a lot of responsibilities that come with adopting a cat. These should be carefully considered before bringing home a new family pet.<br />Source: http://www.petyak.com/cats/general/adopting-a-cat.aspx<br />
  4. 4. COST <br />While there are usually fees associated with adopting a cat, they are typically much less than one would pay if they were to purchase a pet from a breeder or pet store. Depending on where you choose to adopt a cat, the adoption fee may include shots, spay or neutering and even microchipping.<br />
  5. 5. SAVE A LIFE<br />One of the greatest benefits of adopting instead of buying is that you know that you are saving the life of a cat that might otherwise have to be put down. Cats in shelters wind up there for various reasons, but there is only so much room to keep them. Many shelters only give cats (and other animals) so much time to be adopted before putting them to sleep. <br />
  6. 6. Tested for Aggressiveness<br />Shelters and other groups that adopt cats will not place aggressive cats in homes. That means that cats that are up for adoption have usually been through some sort of temperament testing to be sure that they are not aggressive.<br />
  7. 7. Litter Box Trained<br />Most cats, and even many kittens, available for adoption have already been litter box trained. Of course, by adopting a more mature cat, you can avoid many of the challenges that come with having a kitten in the home. This includes not only litter box issues, but destructive tendencies as well.<br />
  8. 8. Socialized (Animals and Humans)<br />Most cats, and even many kittens, available for adoption have already been litter box trained. Of course, by adopting a more mature cat, you can avoid many of the challenges that come with having a kitten in the home. This includes not only litter box issues, but destructive tendencies as well.<br />
  9. 9. Finances<br />Having a cat brings with it some financial responsibilities. In addition to food and litter there are vet bills, flea and heartworm prevention and boarding or other care for the cat should you need to be away from home. One should also consider that as the cat ages, additional vet care may be required.<br />
  10. 10. Time Commitment<br />Some extremely busy people who have absolutely no time for a pet think a cat is a good alternative to a dog. While, in some ways, a cat does require less time, it is not correct to think that a cat requires no attention at all.<br />
  11. 11. Other Pets/Small Children<br />While adopted cats have already been socialized with other animals, it is also important to consider how the pets you already have at home are going to react to a new cat. Also, some small children have a tendency to be a little rough with cats. Be sure to watch the interaction between pets and small children. Very small children should not be left alone with pets. <br />
  12. 12. CHANGING CAT’S LITTERBOX.<br />Please watch this video. This is an extra bit.<br />It is non-compulsory. <br />Click for video<br />
  13. 13. Tips on how to clean cat litterbox.<br />Wear rubber gloves used just for cleaning the cat litter.<br />Dump all the used litter into a garbage bag, tie off and toss immediately.<br />Using hot, soapy water scrub the litter box with clean cloths just for this purpose. When done with the cloths,wash properly.<br />After washing, rinse the litter box well to remove all traces of soap. Fill the box with hot water and 1/4 cup of bleach. Let soak for 10 to 15 minutes.<br />Rinse thoroughly with hot water.<br />Wipe the litterbox clean with cloth.<br />Fill the box with fresh kitty litter and it’s ready to serve its purpose again. <br />Clean the litterbox as frequently as needed. Before washings, you can use a scooper to scoop out waste daily, that will keep things fresher longer.<br />
